“Bueno bonito y barato.”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Went twice the same week. Good and unpretentious Mexican seafood at affordable prices. Mostly Mexican crowd. Much better than having lunch at those 5 ave. places that are more for tourists.

“Shrimp tacos and Ceviche at a great price.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is not a fancy restaurant nor an upscale place. Its a place that locals eat for inexpensive seafood. Which is exactly what we were looking for.

I tried the shrimp soup that my dive buddy and I shared. It was "ok" as I have had better so I was glad we shared. Then we dove into the ceviche which was very tasty. I eat and make ceviche often and can tell you the varieties they have here are excellent and well made. Then we ate the shrimp tacos which honestly tasted awesome!! Good grilled flavor and yet tender and tasty unlike many places that overcook the shrimp.

Enjoyed the food and the price which I felt was inexpensive considering the quality of the seafood. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because of the ambiance but its exactly what its meant to be!! Enjoy.

“Fresh and delicious seafood. Unpretentious place.”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This place may not be for everybody as it looks a little informal (plastic dishes covered with plastic bags) but the food deserves the visit. Order the Taco Necio (shrimps, beans and cheese) and try the different sauces. Obviously an aguachile order or tostada is delicious. If you are on a diet try the lettuce tacos ("figurín"). The service is kind. I'll come back!!

“Amazing food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I went to this restaurant several times in 2012. The food is really good and their speciality, aguachiles, are superb! Aguachiles is a traditional Mexican dish and can be cooked using different products.
The people there was really friendly too.
